Last week's blackout from space.

See that little white dot in New England? That's me with a lighter at a Bon Jovi concert.

Someone at Fox is a big fat idiot too I guess.

I'm quite sure that if Fox hadn't tried to have this book banned, it may have passed in the night without anyone even noticing. That being said, Rush Limbaugh is a Big Fat Idiot was really very very funny. Good times for all.

David Blaine isn't a magician... he's just really bad at suicide.

His latest try has him suspended over the River Thames in London for more than six weeks. Good luck David, in whatever your goal may be.

Office X for Mac. $99.

Yes, now we're a deal site. :-) Office X for the Macintosh is available at Amazon for $99, off from the already low $149 (Educational version). I was pretty surprised to see it so cheap so I'm not sure if it's a mistake so act fast.

Boycott Buymusic.com?

It seems some Apple fans have started a new site to expose BuyMusic.com. Interesting stuff at BoycottBuyMusic.com.

Tallest Virtual Building!

I found this on Steve's site. He found it somewhere else. It's really quite cool... the world's tallest virtual building!

New Google Toolbar.

toolbar2_logo.gif Google has updated their wondeful toolbar that plugs into Internet Explorer for Windows. (Sorry Mac people...) Anyway, 1.0 was pretty cool as it added a shortcut to search Google right in the main IE window as well as seeing page ranks. However, Google Toolbar 2.0 is much cooler as it keeps the old functionality but adds popup blocking that totally rocks as well as auto-fill options and a number of other cool features. Some people complain that the toolbar tracks everything you do so they can sell the marketing data. Honestly, my life just isn't that interesting, and even it were, there are other ways to find out that I go to ESPN, GameFAQs, Amazon, and PartyPoker 38 times a day. :-)

Get A Low Number Red Sox License Plate!

rs8.jpg Upset that you only get random Red Sox license plate number like 9749? Now you can get #8. Go Yaz! Eat Yaz Bread!

Americans are three times as likely to believe in the Virgin Birth of Jesus (83 percent) as in evolution (28 percent).

I liked this quote from the article: Some liberals wear T-shirts declaring, "So Many Right-Wing Christians . . . So Few Lions."

Call Noah! We got a flood.

You know that leaky valve in your basement that you've been meaning to fix for three months but instead, you just put a little bucket underneath it? Well at some point in the middle of the night, mine popped. Ick. I awoke to a frantic crowd at my bedroom door saying that the basement was flooded. The basement, otherwise known as where my Mac, PCs, and oodles of useful and utterly useless electronic gadgets live. As I ran down the stairs in some jeans I found (otherwise it was Joshua in the buff - not a sight most want to see at 6:13am) I found more than an inch of water in the laundry room and a wall-to-wall carpet in the rest of the basement doing an amazing job pretending to be a giant Bounty paper towel. I ran out to Lowes and picked up a Shop-Vac.10 gallon 4hp wet dry vacuum and spent 3+ hours sucking up water out of my future mold farm known as this 30 year old rug. Good times. So far I've pulled up more than 5 gallons of water out of the rug itself, and other 10 or so from the cement laundry room floor. Now I have a fan blowing over half the room and a dehumidifier on the other half. If I manage to discover a new antibiotic (Joshicilin anyone?) I will let you know.

Really Cracker Jack Prizes are back!

At least at the ball game when you buy a $6.00 bag of it, you no longer get some crappy tatoo but actually a real, plastic, green prize. This one was a cool whistle / instrument that can play many notes. Plus, it's shaped like a baseball field! Take me out the ball game!
